lokh
This is the spelling as of 07-Feb-2013
lox
This spelling uses the letter 'x' for this sound. This is more consistent with the International Phonetic Alphabet
lok
Loch in english is pronounced lok, so keep the spelling at it's simplest
so we can use the 'kh' combination for words in dutch, hebrew, arabic...etc

That is entirely correct - we can use the 'kh' combination in all these languages

How about using the now unemployed 'x' for this sound?

Loch is only pronounced 'lok' by Sassenachs who cannae pronounce a proper Scots 'ch'.

Loch is pronounced "lok" in English proper. X (kh) is only in Scots (and disappearing among Glaswegian youth as I read on Wiki).
